BODY | CLEANSING WITH BONE BROTH
THERE ARE SO MANY THINGS WE CAN DO FOR OUR BODIES TO TAKE THE BEST POSSIBLE CARE OF OURSELVES. AND FOR ME, I ALWAYS FEEL BEST WHEN I’M EATING GOOD NUTRITIOUS FOODS. WHENEVER I FEEL LIKE I NEED A POWERFUL RESET AFTER INDULGING, I LOVE MAKING A CLEAN BROTH TO SIP ON. IT’S ALSO MY FAVORITE THING WHEN I'M FEELING RUN DOWN OR A LITTLE UNDER THE WEATHER. I HAVEN’T GRADUATED TO MAKING MY OWN VEGGIE OR BONE BROTH YET, BUT I’M GRATEFUL TO HAVE LEARNED ABOUT SOME AMAZING BRANDS THAT MAKE WONDERFUL GRASS-FED ORGANIC BROTHS. I LOVE BRODO'S BEEF BONE BROTH. BRODO IS A COMPANY BASED IN NEW YORK. BEEF BONE BROTH IS GOOD FOR DIGESTION. IT'S PACKED WITH AMINO ACIDS AND A TON OF BENEFICIAL MINERALS LIKE MAGNESIUM. IF YOU PREFER EITHER CHICKEN OR VEGGIE BROTH INSTEAD, THOSE ARE ALSO TERRIFIC FOR HEALTH AND HAVE THEIR OWN INDIVIDUAL POSITIVE BENEFITS. I START BY HEATING MY BROTH ON THE STOVE AND THEN ADDING ONE WHOLE SQUEEZED LEMON AND SOME HIMALAYAN SEA SALT AND GARLIC. I THEN GRAB A HANDFUL OF PRE-WASHED KALE AND SPINACH AND HEAT EVERYTHING UP UNTIL THE KALE AND SPINACH ARE COOKED THROUGH. THE LEMON, GARLIC, AND GREENS ARE GREAT IMMUNITY BOOSTERS. I POUR EVERYTHING INTO A CUP AND SIP ON IT LIKE TEA.
BEAUTY | IMPROVING SKIN WITH GREEN JUICE
BY NOW WE'VE ALL TRIED, AND EITHER LOVED OR HATED, A GOOD GREEN JUICE. I TYPICALLY MAKE SMOOTHIES AT HOME, BUT WHENEVER I HAVE AN EVENT COMING UP, I TRY TO HAVE A WEEK WHERE I UP MY GREEN JUICE GAME TO HELP IMPROVE MY SKIN TONE AND LET IT WORK ITS MAGIC FROM THE INSIDE OUT. ONE OF THE BENEFITS OF DRINKING GREEN JUICE DAILY IS THAT IT IS RICH IN ANTIOXIDANTS, INCLUDING VITAMINS C AND E. THESE ANTIOXIDANTS HELP CLEANSE YOUR SKIN OF THE JUNK THAT CAN LEAD TO ACNE. A GOOD GREEN JUICE IS ALSO INCREDIBLY HYDRATING, AND HYDRATION IS AN ESSENTIAL COMPONENT OF GOOD SKINCARE. IF YOU DON’T HAVE A JUICER AT HOME, THANKFULLY GRABBING SOMETHING ON THE GO HAS BECOME MORE ACCESSIBLE THESE DAYS. I’M A BIG FAN OF JUICE PRESS DOCTOR GREEN JUICE. IT'S MY CURRENT FAVORITE.
BABY | MY QUICK VEGGIE BOWL
LET’S BE HONEST. SOME DAYS THERE ISN'T ENOUGH TIME MAKE THE HEALTHIEST, GOURMET MEALS FOR OUR KIDS (THANK GOODNESS FOR ANNIE’S MAC & CHEESE!). THAT’S WHY I’M SO GRATEFUL FOR QUALITY BRANDS THAT PROVIDE SHORTCUT FOODS THAT ARE NUTRITIOUS, QUICK, AND EASY, THAT I MAKE AT HOME, KNOWING MY SON IS GETTING A HEALTHY, BALANCED MEAL. I’VE SPOKEN MANY TIMES OF MY LOVE FOR RAISED REAL AND ONCE UPON A FARM, AND I’M ALSO A BIG FAN OF THE BRAND LITTLE SPOON. RIGHT NOW, MY SON IS LOVING HIS VEGETABLES (LET’S SEE HOW LONG THAT LASTS!). I’M HAVING A LOT OF FUN MAKING HIM HIS FAVORITE VEGGIE-FORWARD MEALS. IN THIS PHOTO, I STEAMED UP A ONCE UPON A FARM PACK OF BLACK BEANS, SWEET POTATO, AND RED PEPPER, WHICH ALSO CONTAINS THE ADDED HEALTH BENEFITS OF CILANTRO, CUMIN, AND AVOCADO OIL---AND THEN ADDED SOME STEAMED PEAS TO COMPLETE THE MEAL. I’M ALSO A BIG FAN OF DR. PRAEGER'S SPINACH PATTIES FOR KIDS. THEY'RE SUPER QUICK TO MAKE AND A PACKED WITH GREAT NUTRIENTS. SUCCESS! A QUICK, AND HEALTHY MEAL FOR BABY.
